Tunis, 24 December 2015:
The Derna Mujahidine Shura Council (DMSC) has announced that it will support ”any” government that supports Islamic Sharia as the basis of law.
‘‘We are not part of any political conflict taking place now in the country’’, they said in a statement released yesterday.
‘‘Our position in any dialogue or any government is full support as long as (Islamic) Sharia law is the only source of any legislation, and anything in the form of legislation, laws or rules that contravenes sharia is rejected’’, the statement said.
It will be recalled that the DMSC had succeeded in ejecting the more militant IS forces out of the city in June this year and into the city’s outskirts.
The statement of conditional support from the DMSC to the Government of National Unity (GNA) agreed on 17 December in Morocco’s Skhirat and supported by yesterday’s UN Security Council resolution 2259, comes on the same day that the militias of the capital Tripoli, the Tripoli Revolutionaries Brigades also gave their support to a government of national unity.
It will be recalled that the DMSC had on 14th December invited foreign contractors to re-enter their city and resume stalled projects, promising them security. [/restrict]
